I am coming across many cases of piles/fissures these days. Wanted to know what are the preventive measures for it.

I visited DR.Poornachandra K.S last month. i was suffering from h.pyloria infection from the last 3.5 months but all the doctors in Kolkata said it was GERD. i was under medication for GERD but since I visited DR.Poornachandra K.S last month. i was suffering from h.pyloria infection from the last 3.5 months but all the doctors in Kolkata said it was GERD. i was under medication for GERD but since i was not recovering i decided to consult Dr. Poornacandra and after visiting him i got to know that i was not suffering from GERD. he patiently read all my previous records n test reports a . after listening to all that i had to say he suggested that i should undergo a diagnostic endoscopy which was required in my case , and it went quite well. i was initially scared, but later on managed it. the endoscopy report showed that i was suffering from h pyloria infection. the Dr. gave me medicines for a month n now am perfectly fine. before i couldnt eat anything, not even home cooked meal but just after a week of taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Poornachandra i recovered. i had an amazing experience with him. he is highly recommended by me to any one who seeks a gastroentrologist . am overtly satisfied with his teatment procedure. no unnecessary tests or medicines, only those that are required and necesssary for diagnosis. i give Dr. Poornachandra a big thumbs up!!!!! more..

Visited For Abdominal Pain
I visited the doctor for severe pain in the lower abdomen. He was pleasant enough and asked me to describe various symptoms and then asked for several tests to be done. The tests were all inconclusive. I visited the doctor for severe pain in the lower abdomen. He was pleasant enough and asked me to describe various symptoms and then asked for several tests to be done. The tests were all inconclusive. However two days later I had to have an emergency laparoscopic for ectopic pregnancy. My fallopian tube had ruptured and I was bleeding internally. While I understand it's not his area of expertise I'm disappointed **** * ****** **** ** **** ********** ***** *** ********* *** ********. If he had atleast once suggested to visit a gynecologist I probably could have saved the fallopian tube. more..

Ectopic pregnancy is very difficult to diagnose (even on ultrasound in early stages) unless there is a specific history of delayed or a missed period / Gynae complaints. But thanks for this feedback
